Barceló Hotel Group continues its expansion in Morocco with the purchase of two new hotels

Barceló Hotel Group announces the investment of more than 80 million euros in the acquisition and subsequent refurbishment of two 5-star hotels in Casablanca and Rabat, formerly operated under the Farah brand, with 279 and 192 rooms, respectively.

In the coming months, an ambitious project will be carried out for the comprehensive transformation of both hotels, which are expected to be marketed under the Royal Hideaway brand, in the case of the Casablanca hotel, and the Barceló brand for the Rabat hotel. Thus, Barceló Hotel Group disembarks in Morocco with its luxury flagship Royal Hideaway and will be present in the country with the four brands: Royal Hideaway, Barceló, Occidental and Allegro.

This expansion plan confirms the company’s commitment to Morocco’s tourism and economic development and makes it the leading Spanish hotel chain in the country, where it currently operates 8 hotels in 6 cities with more than 1,600 rooms.

Strategic commitment to expansion in Morocco
